Jay and I enjoy giving back to our community when we can. This year, we were proud to donate all the creative for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast WI Annual Bowl for Kids' Sake fundraiser. It's such a wonderful organization for our community, I wanted people to know more than just the event information -- I wanted them to know how truly successful mentoring can be for our children. Since BBBS decided to have a Superhero theme for the event, I merged a comic book style with infographics to tell their great story. The poster was 39" wide, so I broke it up here to be able to see the story more clearly (click images to enlarge).
I had a great time designing and writing the kooky superhero comments throughout. Jay did a great job on the final art (we also did a pledge brochure, t-shirt, and web banners). I truly hope people can see what a great cause this is and find a way to participate and perhaps decide to become a mentor. Zowie!!!
Ahhh... that first cup of coffee in the morning to clear the flog. Okay,
then triple the caffeine! That's what it's like to get a shot by Von.
Super-caffeinated visuals to charge up your advertsing - and super fun to work with. Check out www.vondornphoto.com. Photo by John von Dorn Photography. Photo Direction and Photoshop by WeberWorks.

I live near Baird Creek, a 300-acre wooded parkway, an awesome place to live... always changing, trees vie for space & light in a crowded environment. By sheer chance, the trees fortunate enough to land in the right place, at the right time, not only survive - they grow to tower above the rest. Here, you decide where you want to grow - we're ready to help you get there.
